Young Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster is subject to interest from Premier League club Crystal Palace, but the Londoners will have to fend off Aston Villa, Leeds United and Swansea City.
That’s according to the Mirror – who claim that all four clubs are interesting in adding the England youth star to their ranks on a temporary basis.
The report suggests that Brewster could be on the move as early as January, but isn’t clear on whether Jurgen Klopp is interested in shipping him out or not.
With the Reds opting against strengthening in a big way over the summer, and effectively losing Daniel Sturridge, I’m not sold on the idea that the boss will happily move Brewster on.
An injury to Bobby Firmino or Divock Origi, and Liverpool are in an unenviable position. That is – if we don’t sign anyone in the summer.
Recently, Leipzig forward Timo Werner has been strongly linked with a move to Anfield, including this by Bleacher Report, and that could change things.
If we add the German striker to the ranks at Anfield, then it becomes a tad farcical to suggest Brewster will actually get some decent playing time.
Hypothetically speaking, it would take injuries to two of Bobby, Origi and Werner for the youngster to be considered – and that just wouldn’t be good for his development.
This is all speculation, I should add, aside from what’s been covered in this report, there is no reason to think our No.24 is on the move just yet.
